2006 Azera Limited driver side power seat motor
I just bought a 2006 Azera from a little old lady. The car was garage kept and only has 35,000 miles. I never checked the power seat before I bought it. My wife went to move the seat forward and there is nothing. Right now the seat is all the way back. The seat moves up/down and the tilt back/front work. I took the side panel off and checked for continuity. The switch checked out good. I then checked for voltage, and that was good as well. I tried looking for the seat limiter but could not reach it. At this point, I was pretty sure the motor on the front of the seat frame was the slide motor. I was able to unplug it. I am getting voltage when the switch is pressed in the forward position. There is nothing when pressing the back position. It seems like all of the switches are working correctly and it would be a motor problem.
If it is the motor, how do you remove it? I struggled to get the 2 Phillips screws out only to find it does not lift out. I can't get the back 2 bolts uncovered to pull the seat out of the car because the slide is over the plastic bolt covers. Is there some way of manually sliding the seat front?
thanks for any help
